Hope? Journal 25. Februar 1915

"Wäre ich ein Fremder, der mich und den Verlauf meines Lebens beobachtet, müßte ich sagen, daß alles in Nutzlosigkeit enden muß, verbraucht in unauf- hörlichem Zweifel, schöpferisch nur in Selbst- quälerei. Als Beteiligter hoffe ich."

"If I were a stranger, who observed myself and the course of my life, I would have to say that everything must end in uselessness, used up in inexorable doubt, creative only in self punishment... (but) as a participant in the process I still hope."

Franz Kafka
